Using a healthy mix of plain language and light entertainment this book examines the facts and myths about the Earth and its climate, as well as the related challenges facing the country and planet in the 21st century and beyond. Presented as a satirical fictional debate, it blends together two streams: a methodical part - centred on the conflict of opinion between the beliefs that global warming is real and the opposite view questioning if such a phenomenon does indeed exist - and a satirical one - involving frequent hilarious exchanges and quips.
Stefan Raicu was born and educated in communist Romania. As a teenager and young adult, he experienced the hardship of life behind the Iron Curtain. He completed an Economics Honours degree in 1978 and then, together with his wife and young son, migrated to Australia in 1983.
